Linear Analysis extends
Linear Algebra to infinite dimensional vector spaces. Functions form
linear spaces of infinite dimension, and differentiation is a linear
operation. Among the numerous applications of linear analysis is the
study of ODE's and PDE's.
We will introduce Banach and Hilbert spaces, and linear maps
(operators) between them. Four major theorems will be discussed:
Hahn-Banach, uniform boundedness (Banach-Steinhaus), open mapping, and
closed graph. These theorems have interesting consequences, in
particular regarding the spectrum of linear operators.
